Scottish Letter Enjoys Month-Long Holiday in Thailand

By Gary Cutlack on at

A letter sent in a remote part of the Scottish Highlands to a business 300m down the road found itself enjoying the sort of secret adventure worthy of a Pixar film, as it was accidentally sent to Thailand and took a month to eventually (bravely) make it back to its intended destination.

Further adding to the mystery is the presence of a Welsh post mark on the stamp -- a second class one no less -- meaning the letter also had a brief stay in Wales for reasons unknown, before eventually arriving at the West Sutherland Fisheries Trust more than a month after being sent.

Someone from the Post Office could probably explain what happened, were we to ask. Probably went in the wrong sack. Got picked up beneath something else. This seemed interesting to begin with, honestly. [BBC]
